      Hi Janos,

      Look in View | Options | Files | Filter Binary Codes and open the
      file. You should/might see the replacement character (note while
      you are in Options) appear at the bottom of the page. If so, and
      if the rest of your file looks OK, then take the file out of
      Read-only under the Document menu and delete the character. You
      might try using Document | InsertFile... unto a new document
      instead.

      The following is from help. Please understand what it says,
      before making changes to binary documents such as *.doc and
      *.exe, etc.

      Filter Binary Codes:
      By default, if you try to load a file that contains null
      characters (a character with a decimal value of 0), NoteTab will
      treat the first occurring null as the end of the file. This
      option lets you override this behavior by allowing NoteTab to
      substitute null characters with another character – defined in
      the "Substitute Binary Character" field. When set, you can load
      the full content of any type of file (including binaries).
      Important: saving files which have had characters substituted
      will not restore the control character! This option slows the
      loading of large files, so do not set it if you use only true
      text files.

      Warn Partial Loading:
      Warns if a file has only been partially loaded due to the
      presence of null characters. This option has no effect if "Filter
      Binary Codes" is set.

      Warn Binaries Substituted:
      Displays a warning message if binary characters have been
      substituted in the loaded document.

      Happy NoteTab'n,
